Welcome / welcome back

Thanks for being a part of Moon Shots. Whether you are a new member, current, active, occasional or lurking, you contribute to the value of this space.

A special thanks to Jon Ingham, who cared for this space over the past year or so, and continues to contribute energy through linking his Social Advantage blog providing perspective from the edge of HR, and to Jack Martin Leith before him.

Of course, we are grateful to Gary Hamel for his inspiration and for continuing to grace this space with his Management 2.0 Blog and MLAB (Management Laboratory) activities.

My goal for this Moon Shots is to pursue the rediscovery of fire. There have been a number of attempts to spark some form of real-world activity, and I suppose that some members of Moon Shots have indeed been inspired to do something with the ideas that get launched in this space. (Indeed, I’ve started a project to demonstrate a new approach to trade development I’ve dubbed “Managed Value Trade,” that has as its goal a self-organizing, sustainable approach to trade that depends on strengthening the ability of each party to progress to its “next” level of social and economic benefit.)

In this space, I hope participants will feel encouraged to think aloud –to say things that will inspire others to comment and contribute their own insights in ways that can be acted on individually or collaboratively. We need management renegades.

In particular, think about using the “Group” feature to start your own projects, or actions. See what happens. It’s worth a shot (Moon Shots, that is.) If you live in, work in, or visit New York join New York Shots. Maybe we can add a meet-up dimension to Moon Shots.

A Whole In the Ocean, The de-massification of production and the rise of the consumer (who needs traders?)

The New York times a story (20 Apr 2013) with this headline: "Toyota Expansion Reflects a Push for  U. S. Lexus Sales"

This may sound to some of you like a good thing, and to others like a paranoid pipe dream --but let me assure you-- this is NOT more good news about the re-birth and return of high paying manufacturing jobs to…

A Hole In The Ocean: Cultural barriers to sustainable growth

[Background: this essay is fall-out from a discussion group, "Architecture for Humanity." It grew from a topic that asked, "What about pouring our soul and heart as architects & humanitarians into projects right in our own backyard." It caught my eye for two reasons. First, I started this blog shortly after the Haiti earthquake largely because I saw the initial emergency response as massive and futile; leaving the island and its people in a mess no better than it was…

A Hole In The Ocean: The Oxymoronic Search for An Energy Solution

It is oxymoronic to  combine the words "energy" and "profitable."  It's no less asinine than claiming to save money by "buying" things you neither want nor need simply because they are 'on sale'.

The thinking gets worse when people link descriptors like "carbon based fuels" and "profitability." Such a phrase is a complete contradiction in terms. Such fuzzy thinking leads us to make bad choices like committing ourselves to fossil fuels leading us to even more moronic…

A Hole In the Ocean: The Earth and other Sinking Ships, What to do first?

 

Imagine you are on a large, modern, ocean liner. Curious about such a huge vessel, you decide to go on a unsupervised tour. Wandering the labyrinth of decks, holds, hallways, and stairway, you are surprised to step in a puddle of water. You think, “What the hell is?” You look about. There’s no one in sight, no crew, no passengers. Maybe you’re lost. You spot a sign on a bulkhead, it says, Galley #1.

“Ah, the galley,” you think,  “No wonder. Some waiter probably spilled…

A Hole In The Ocean: How Mitt Romney's Shining Reservoir On The Hill Trickles Down

Obama, in 1998, says he favors “some redistribution” (presumably of ‘wealth’).

Really? The clear implication is that government has a proper role in reallocating resources to meet emerging needs and changing conditions.  Romney’s view (circa May 2012) is “wealth” –like water- seeks its own ‘natural’ level, and the natural level is for holders of wealth to get more (i.e. ‘wealth’ should be pumped uphill, where it naturally resides in large reservoirs where the right people can use it…

A Hole In The Ocean: Living Bridges on FB and other modest proposals

(This was way too long for me to post on the LIving Bridges Facebook page, so I figured I'd try provide a link to it instead.) In any event, I like Living Bridges and it nests quite comfortably within our Trade & Transportation Research Institute project. 

I started this post because Living Bridges does seem to be have a workable action plan, one that…
